The latest installment of the "This is..." meme.
It's not my "trade," but here's my best card-making/stamping tip I can offer. Ok, it's two tips, but they go together!!
* When you make a card you love, use the same colors/papers/layout and make a bunch, instead of starting from scratch each time.
* When choosing paper, look for ones that are color-coordinated with a good mix of solids and prints so you can stamp on the solids and layer the prints.
My ideal paper is:
2. thick, card-stock-like (but not textured--they make it hard to get an even stamp)
3. pre-color coordinated with the aforementioned mix of solids and patterns (preferably with some larger prints and some mini)
Perfect example, by Amy Butler:
Oooohhh, the possibilities are endless!!
P.S. Anyone interested in a card-making tutorial?? I'd be happy to tell you what I know! :)
